It's coming along. It's difficult to tell what you are doing on the north side so it will be a surprise for us when you put the windows in! What did you mean by welding blind?

Looking good Kenny. Does the welding blind issue have anything to do with the can of "Bud" on the table?

Not the single can Will, but the 7 or so empties in the trash can might! LOL

On the welding blind, once I strike an arc, I can hardly tell where I am welding. It all just blends together. Daniel, doesn't matter if it's one or a dozen, still cant get that weld where it needs to go. I usually grind off a lot of extra.:D:bigrofl:

I had to do some welding with my gas powered Lincoln on my cow feeder brackets. Picked up my older welding helmet, not realizing how bad the cover lens were. I could see fair till I struck an arc.....then blind as you were! Gotta pick me up several spare covers.

Well, that's no good.
Do you wear glasses?
Under the helmet?

Got to have the glasses on, other wise I couldn't tell where the part was to be welded.

Even a slight haze on the protective lens covers will cause everything to look foggy once you strike an arc. Maybe that's your issue.

Daniel, do the auto darkening have covers on them? My helmet has the knob on the side turned all the way to darkest, but could use one more notch. If I get out into the sunshine, I can see it all pretty good.

Corrective lenses for the helmet are available. I tried my buddies the other day. What a difference, compared to specs under the helmet.

If I'm understanding you Kenny , your saying your lens isn't getting dark enough for you to watch the arc ? Sounds like that would be very hard on your eyes . Just another question what kind of welder and settings are you welding at ? Thanks , Al

If I understand this correctly, it sounds like you have the knob set to dark.
